    Leaf Guidelines

    This is a free service available in the fall, November through January or until all leaves are collected. No phone call is necessary. Please rake leaf piles curbside being careful not to pile them in the street, near fire hydrants or next to trees. Leaf piles should be free of sticks and rocks. 

    NOTE: Inclement weather can impact the dates above. We'll keep you posted of changes to the schedule if they occur.

    Other Options

    • If you choose to bag your leaves, the bagged leaves must be placed in Blue Pre-paid Trash Bags and then placed curbside with your trash on your regular collection day anytime during the year.
    • Save time and money...Compost Your Leaves. Leaves are an excellent source for compost.
    • Residents may take bagged (not in pre-paid blue trash bags) leaves directly to the Concord Turnipike Landfill free of charge (no weight limit).
